RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Starts with thin crimpy face moves. Crux midway thru route, reachy move off sidepull to edge.

Location

This is the third bolted route down on the left side wall as you enter the corridor.

Protection

6 bolts and chain anchors.

Replaced bolts this morning. Although one hanger was a spinner,the actual existing bolts were quite solid and took some muscle to remove. I also tightened down all other bolts. I will go out in a couple weeks and check them all again. Feb 22, 2015

This route has cleaned up nicely and is pretty sweet. The holds that exist on it now seem pretty solid. Apr 9, 2014

Well, it may have been a pile years ago, but now it's cleaned up nice (as others have said) and climbs great! Thin, sustained, excellent climbing! Not as long or steep or imposing (or hard) as the routes further down the wall...but well worth doing. Get on it!! Mar 19, 2014

While Aimee Rose is not off for worst route on the left side of the corridor, consider the quality of routes on the left side of the corridor. They are all, for the most part, amazing routes. This route, while chossy, climbs really well. It is somewhat sustained and worth doing. Aimee Rose is also correct about the top (last bolt to the anchor) being a mess; I believe she and others have "cleaned" that part of the route (thanks). While I disagree with bomb status, Megatonic needs to be climbed more. Who knows, with traffic this line may clean up nicely and someday reach classic status. Mar 23, 2012

I did this route when it first went in and it was ok. Now some holds have broken at the crux but the real issue is the mega-choss at the top. I pulled off a fist sized hold and many smaller ones. Definitely the worst route on the left side of the corridor. Mar 27, 2011
